500ml poured into Tired Hands Stemware

A: HandFarm is straw/light golden, in color. The initial pour yielded a fluffy two finger head that quickly receded into about a cm of white film.

S: Really nice aroma on this. Notes of chardonnay, oak, tangy funk and spicy yeast.

T: Every aspect of the taste is balanced, yet very subtle. The taste opens up with a beautiful lemon character that flows into a soft tartness; ever-present are subtle notes of chardonnay and oak.

M: Light bodied with a soft carbonation. Dry finish.

O: I would describe this to be a very delicate take on the style. Everything that you would except from a wine barrel aged saison is present, but in a very soft, yet nuanced way. Very balanced, and too drinkable. This beer is nearly perfect, at least I think so.

500 mL, green waxed bottle. Served in TH stemware.

Pours a chilled hazy gold with a small white head and soft lacing. Remarkable, delicate balance of fruit, yeast and wine in nose and flavor. White wine, oak, orange peel, faint earthiness on the nose. Ok, I'm about to say something crazy but flavor initially hit me like the first time I had Ann (fresh). The base, Farmhands, is a bright, refreshing grassy and lemon saison and the barrel aging has turned this into a beautiful beer that transcends what I expect from the style. Loads of lemon, sweet tropical citrus, white wine and mild oak tannin and grassy hops provide balance in the finish. Medium body, effervescent and crisp with light acidity. I will happily drink the rest of my bottles, and soon.
